Shocks, Suspension, CLEARING THE AIR | Cross Kart Pt. 10

  • Published: 10 July 2019
  • We had a bunch of comments saying that we mounted our front suspension to the chassis of our cross kart wrong, which would result in stress on the mounting points, and eventual failure. In this video, we clear up the issue, and explain what we did and how our setup won't have the problems that some commenters thought it would. We also mount the front shocks (although they're too soft, so we have to redo them), the rear shocks and suspension mounts (using more Miata parts), and mount the steering rack and tie rods. We almost have a roller!

    Thanks for Watching!

      Check your ground but not at the clamp but inside the cabinet I've seen another YouTuber run into that and what it was was the connection sort of came a little loose it could be something totally different but that's what solved that kind of a problem with another YouTuber

        I just heard a gunshot in the background , aren't they houses just too close to each other to be discharging a firearm in the woods? Don't get me wrong I'm very pro gun I just believe in safe operation of firearms

                        it's probably 80 to 90 degrees outside and you've been working out there for several hours probably the welder just needs to be turned off for about an hour to cool down

                            That's why I always have a spool of flux core wire around. If you run out of gas or you have to weld outside in the wind, the flux core doesn't care.

                                Why didn't you move the bottom shock mount for the front suspension to the lower arm, near the axle? You could have also brought out the top mounts to make the shock stand up right as much as possible..

                                                You guys should've gotten a blueprint build. I've seen some ads on facebook for one called (piranha) they only sell the blueprints so it can be a home made project for the crafty, it's pretty sweet looking. It could've been great as a learning curve for future builds.

These style of joints in a generic lable are "Spherical Rod End Joints". The tractor style that you bought are typically designed with a tighter ball race. This keeps empliment tools from loosely tracking while in storage mode, and while being pulled under load behind the tractor.

                                                                        If you had bought motorsports grade Spherical Ball Joints/Spherical Rod End Joints, most of them would have had less friction applied during the manufacturing tolerance process.

                                                                        Just fyi. Not super important for what you guys are doing. Just though you guys and others might like to know. Offroading and Race Car Spherical Rod End Joints are typically a bit stiffer as well, as they are designed to maintain tighter tolerances while under extreme force loads.
